Red the Strong
History is written by the victors so the cliché goes. Probably due to my own ignorance, but I never considered that along with Christian Martyrs, whom I was brought up with tales of their violent deaths, there would be pagan martyrs with equally gory deaths. There is something in this about absolute faith. Adherence to a vow, a promise not to give in no matter how much torture is endured. Foolishness or bravery is for you to decide.
